From Steven M. Denenberg, M.D.

I made two modifications to your profile. Here is the original:

(Click on the photo above to see rhinoplasty patients of mine.)

In the changed versions, the first one shows only taking down the hump. The second one shows the hump removal, but also a small elevation and narrowing of the tip:


Here is an animation of the first change, just the hump:

And here is an animation of the second change:


Now here are links to the two-page explanation of why we almost always have to narrow the nasal bones when a hump is taken down. These two pages don't have any gross pictures taken during surgery. If you don't want to see gross pictures, just look at these two pages!

Let me know what you think of these modifications.

If you have any questions about this, or if you want me to evaluate any other photos of yours, feel free to email me:

A couple more points about selecting your surgeon:
1) It is mandatory that you see before and after photos before deciding on a surgeon. The rhinoplasty operations are the most difficult procedures a plastic surgeon performs. Every surgeon performs them with different levels of skill. You need to see that your doctor has been able to accomplish for other people what you want for yourself. Certificates and board certifications won't tell you that -- photos will.

2) Computer imaging is important. It allows you to see what the doctor has in mind, so you can tell him if you don't think he understands your goals accurately.
